HIGH GRADE COLLECTABLE AND LOW GRADE UNDESIRABLE SMITHS

FIRST LET ME APOLOGISE TO ANY OF YOU WHO HAVE SENT IN REQUESTS FOR APPRAISALS, VALUATIONS, BASIC INFORMATION AND SO ON ABOUT SMITHS WATCHES. AS I EXPLAIN ON THE SITE I ONLY DO THIS IF I HOLD THE ITEM IN MY HAND SO YOU HAVE TO POST IT IN. HOWEVER CASUAL YOUR ENQUIRY SEEMS IT IS ONE OF MANY TIME CONSUMING SMALL MATTERS THAT I JUST DO NOT HAVE TIME TO DEAL WITH.

THE BULK OF THE QUESTIONS  COULD BE SORTED OUT QUITE SIMPLY, BEFORE THEY GET TO THE SERIOUS STAGE. I DO NOT CONSIDER AND SMITHS WATCH THAT IS NOT MADE IN ENGLAND SPECIFICALLY, AND SO SIGNED ORIGINALLY ON THE DIAL BASE ABOVE OR BELOW 6 O'CLOCK TO BE OF HIGH QUALITY, AND WORTH ANY ATTENTION. THE MADE IN BRITAIN  WATCHES WERE PRIMARILY AIMED AT THE YOUTH MARKET AND ARE THOUGH ATTRACTIVE, POOR QUALITY MOVEMENTS WHICH SMITHS THEMSELVES ONLY GUARANTEED FOR 6 MONTHS WHEN NEW. 

MANY OF THE MADE IN BRITAIN WATCHES REFLECT THE DESIGN ASPIRATIONS OF THE MADE IN ENGLAND PRODUCTS BUT WITH USUALLY LOW JEWELLED PIN-PALLET ESCAPEMENTS ARE NOT CAPABLE OF LONG TERM ACCURACY OR DURABILITY. 

SO BEFORE YOU BUY YOUR WATCH OR HAVING INHERITED IT FROM YOUR GRANDPARENT, PLEASE CHECK THAT IT IS MADE IN ENGLAND, THE GUARANTEED SIGN OF QUALITY, BEFORE MAKING FURTHER ENQUIRIES.
